Fire crews have spent an exhausting day battling serious
blazes in Dunedin and elsewhere in Otago, including near the
town of Dunback.
Hundreds have experienced power cuts and flights have been
grounded as high winds battered Otago.
Strong winds are set to continue across Otago today, with the
MetService predicting gales of up to 130kmh this morning.
The rise of Islamic State is a ''danger to all states,
including New Zealand'', and we should push for more action
by the United Nations Security Council.
Official temperatures reached 27degC in the Dunedin city
centre and 26degC at Dunedin Airport, MetService said.
An important link in Dunedin's cycleway infrastructure is
officially opened by Mayor Dave Cull yesterday.
